Good afternoon, hope this finds everyone well and enjoying life! We've had some glorious summer sunshine here in the SE...perfect Wimbledon weather....but today started dull and damp! I'm not complaining, I needed to do some housework (don't worry I didn't overdo it :) and it's much easier to feel motivated (as motivated as I get over housework!) when the sun isn't shining. So now I'm feeling virtuous and taking time to play!
I made this card using this month's amazing freebie from The East Wind. Their current challenge is 'Patriotic' -use the colours of your flag. I coloured e image with copics and polychromos, cut it out and mounted it on top of some stamped images of iconic London landmarks and added some bunting and buttons.
Thanks for visiting.
Enjoy the rest of the day

Fabulous Chris..outstanding colouring and love the background and buntings..I think housework is over rated and only the necessary is in order..much better to be in the craft
